After What Ted Cruz Just Did, Obama Has No Reason To Not Visit The Border

As Western Journalism reported, Texas Gov. Rick Perry turned down an invitation to shake Barack Obama’s hand and pose for photos when the latter touches down in Austin Wednesday for a series of fundraisers in the Lone Star State. The Republican governor responded with his own invitation, asking Obama to meet him for a more substantive discussion of the current border crisis affecting the state.

Reports this week indicate Obama was receptive to the suggestion, indicating the two leaders will sit down for a conference on the issue during a meeting in Dallas this week.

Prior to the current arrangement, Perry used Twitter to publicly call on Obama to visit the Texas-Mexico border during his trip.

Not to be outdone, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz used the same forum to urge the same outcome, even offering Obama directions from his two planned fundraising events to the nearest border town.

He went on to express dismay that a sitting president would be more concerned about adding to his coffers than addressing a real, identifiable threat to the nation’s security.

Cruz and Perry are not the only elected officials requesting Obama pay a visit to America’s besieged southern border.

U.S. Reps. Ruben Hinojosa and Filemon Vela – both Democrats – drafted a letter to Obama urging him to witness the infiltration of the border by illegal immigrants, specifically unaccompanied minors hailing from Central America.

The pair wrote that “the Rio Grande Valley has been deluged by a massive influx” of these invaders, agreeing with their Republican counterparts that the best course of action includes a personal visit by Obama.

“During your trip to Texas, we urge you to visit South Texas to see firsthand all that is being done,” the congressmen wrote.

  1. HE NEEDS TO GO TO THE BORDER SO HE CAN SEE 1ST HAND HOW EFFECTIVE HIS PLAN IS WORKING.

    • ATrober says:

      Obama *knows* the plan is working. He and Ayers and Jarrett and the DNC all know it is working.

      Now, Holder needs to stop any state from demanding voter ID and the Dems will have what they want.

      In the meantime, the GOP is up to the same thing, see MS primary with Dem votes to stop an incumbent primary loss.

      BOTH parties HAVE to go.

    Since barry is the one who orchestrated this invasion, and Americans are already contracting the diseases, it is only fair for barry obama to infect him self with scabbies plus all the other diseases. This would be fair and deserved.

  3. G. Braud says:

    If he would visit the border towns, he would have to admit that he was wrong, and we all know that he would never admit to that, unless he could blame Bush.

    Of course, the controllers of his puppet strings may not have given him permission to visit the border towns.

    • ATrober says:

      Well, isn't it Bush's fault the border is the Rio Grande? I mean, Bush is from Texas, and the Rio Grande is the southern border of Texas. So, there. It is Bush's fault.

    If any executive of any public or private office is not getting the JOB done, then that person SHOULD be removed. For instance, why have we not secured the border with Mexico with a double fence, within which we could set up an enterprise zone along the entire border so that we could entice the companies that have moved their operations overseas to come back, tax free ,if they would be willing to pay for their facilities and improvements, thus creating over a million jobs for our workers. Remember, these hundreds of companies are a complete loss to our economy as it stands now, so this action can only result in a plus for the American economy. We could also hire English speaking Mexicans on a workers visa program and thus eliminate all of the alien crossings along the border. This would not cost the taxpayers anything as the companies who set up in the zone would be responsible to pay all cost, including a zone police force and all necessary roads to and from their manufacturing facilities along with all necessary improvements of lighting and water etc. You see, it’s all just a matter of making a positive out of a negative. If you would like more details regarding how we can add a Million New JOBS very quickly, please feel free to call or email.
    Your response will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Obama's incompetence just amazes me. He is too busy trying to be a celebrity and not taking care of the real issues. As we sit back and watch his lame duck term, the problems will pile up for the next Pres. that takes his place. Meanwhile, the American people will pay for his mistakes. The best we can do now is damage control until he leaves office. Hopefully we can get an impeachment mixed with a copius amount of humiliation for him to leave with…………….He deserves prison time.
